If God came to you and said, “I’ll give you one prayer request,” what would you ask for? What’s the one thing you would request? That’s a revealing question isn’t it? It helps us discover our highest priority, our deepest longing, and our hidden motivation. And that’s good, because our priorities, longings, and motivations often influence and control us without us realizing it.
In Psalm 27, King David tells us what he asked for when given when given this prayer opportunity. He was facing external and internal enemies. He asked for a sight of God’s beauty because God’s beauty expels ugly fears.
